Senior Portrait Requirements are different from school to school, year to year. As long as you are not obligated to be in front of a plain, studio backgrounds, I am your photographer. To start, we find a date and time that work, then we discuss a location that reflects your senior. Either bring or email me your school requirements worksheet. At the session I will aim to give you a mix of images that meet the specifications as well as some more fun, candid and contextual shots. Feel free to bring an additional outfit or two, if it is only going to be your senior in the shots. A formal and more casual look are advised. Avoid graphic T Shirts, ripped clothing, worn shoes.
Pricing: $250 which includes 10 edited files sent online for download. Sessions include edited digital images and an online gallery. My print pricing and photo products are priced at fair rates… this is not how I make money but I offer this service because I want you to get quality products. The company I use does just that, very well. To get all images it is $400. Additional Fees: Individual images are $25. If you want to add people to the shoot, book a small group session. Photo CD or USBs are $25. $2/mile Travel fee applies when 20 miles from Rendition Studios, billed round trip. Retouching available for a limited time for an additional fee ($2/minute, payable in advance).
Location: There is no travel fee if you stay within 20 miles of Rendition Studios (where there are some pretty unique and gorgeous sites). That being said, if you have a spot in mind that is farther out, let’s do it, just be prepared for the $1/mile charge, payable on shoot day.
Timing: Most senior portrait shoots last about 45 minutes, you have up to an hour. Session time should mostly focus on your senior but if the family would like to jump into a few shots at the very end, we can work that in. Let me know in advance so I can plan for it. Turn around times are typically 2 weeks (longer with additional retouching) so the sooner you get booked, the better.
Booking: Schedule your session in advance. Ideally it is at least a month before your photos are due so you have time to pick out the shot you would like to submit and get it retouched.
School Submission: You are responsible for finding out the school’s requirements and passing them along to your photographer before the photography session begins. Additional retouching for the ONE image you are sending to the school is included in the price. When you see your online gallery you can pick that shot, let me know and I will edit the file and send it back directly. It will take 5-7 days for me to edit and turn that image around to you (via email or dropbox). After that, you are responsible for submitting the image file to the school.
